My year of painting weekly wildflowers is almost coming to an end and I'm beginning to panic a little about the next project. I've been doing these 52 WEEKS projects for three years now and though one part of me wants to give it a rest, another really, really, really enjoys not only the challenge of focusing on such a large project but also likes the weekly deadlines to work towards. When I'm just working on studio work I tend to ebb and flow and jump from project to project until I have a date for an exhibit looming so having a self-imposed deadline works well for me.
Plus, I do like working on a new subject matter each year as it is a bit of a change from my daily practice which currently consists of canoes, tipis and animals. I can see wildflowers showing up more and more in my future and I do love how that happens, how what I've been doing for one year can morph seamlessly into my other painting.

Im not sure which I admire more, the beautiful art work or the dedication of painting one each week....for the past 156 weeks! You continue to be an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your art on your blog.

I can't wait to see them all up together in January.

I adore this project. I've always loved the projects you do but this one is by far my favorite. So pretty! You've actually inspired me to do one of my own this year. I'm excited but terrified. I'm so terrible at following a schedule.

I'm so glad you're doing your own this year...believe me, it's not always been easy but fortunately I am full of this terrible sense of responsibility so if I commit to it publicly it tends to keep me motivated. ;)
